‘Douche du Jour’: Denise Helms Posts Racist Facebook Assassination Wish for President Obama

A California woman has been fired from her job and has attracted the attention of the Secret Service after posting a racist Facebook status wishing for President Barack Obama’s assassination.

Fox 40 reports that 22-year-old Denise Helms of Turlock, 100 miles (161 km) east of San Jose, was so incensed after President Obama’s Tuesday night reelection victory that she took to Facebook and posted this status:

“Another 4 years of the nigger… maybe he will get assassinated this term!”

Helms told Fox 40 she “didn’t think it would be that big of a deal.”

Apparently the Secret Service– and her employer– did think it was a big deal. Not only was Helms fired from her job at a Cold Stone Creamery ice cream store, the Secret Service says it is investigating the Facebook post. While Helms probably won’t face any legal action for her racist comment, she technically could be charged with a felony if the Secret Service deems her to be a credible threat to the president’s safety.

When asked if she would be bothered if President Obama was assassinated, Helms told Fox 40 that “it’s not something I would dwell on.”

“It’s not something I would be upset about,” she said, while insisting that she is not a racist.

    While I appreciate the phrase “Douche du Jour”, it is entirely too kind in this instance.

    So, I guess I wouldn’t be sexist for calling her a fat, putrid sow.

    Facebook trap’s another one exercising free speech. She said ‘maybe’. She didn’t say ‘I will’. There are millions who think the same way, but have the good sense not to post it. It’d be interesting, if they did. Could the SS go to all their houses and harass them, too?
